5/17 MLB ARTICLE

PITCHERS

JACOB DEGROM

· Pitching lights out this season with a 2.7 xFIP and a 32.4% strikeout rate

· Marlins lineup has a 24.3% aggregate K rate

· Has put up 45 and 30 in two previous starts against MIA this season


MAX SCHERZER

· Fairly easy to pay up for Scherzer and Degrom with the value in CLE and OAK bats

· Cubs strikeout a good amount, 21% aggregate K rate

· 3.15 xFIP and 34% K rate and I would expect him to start dominating very soon


JON GRAY

· Everyone in the Phillies lineup has a 20%+ K rate except for Segura and Franco

· Put up 25 in Coors against the Phillies already this season

· 25% strikeout rate and much better against RHH and Phillies lineup is very righty heavy with Harper, Herrera, and Hernandez the only guys who bat from the left side


FIRST BASE

CJ CRON

· Only $3800 and been swinging a hot bat

· Batting .333 against LHP this season with a .417 ISO

· Always been better vs LHP than RHP

· Gonzalez’s main pitch is the sinker and Cron has a .250 ISO against that pitch


JAKE BAUERS

· Bundy gave up a .319 BA and .553 SLG to LHH last season and for his career, Bundy has been much worse against LHH

· CLE team is loaded with lefties and are very cheap

· Only $3500 with power and a little bit of speed


SECOND BASE

JASON KIPNIS

· Bat finally came to life with 2 homeruns last night

· Was hitting well leading up to last night with a bunch of 2 hit game recently

· Dirt cheap at $3300 batting in the 2 hole


NICKY LOPEZ

· Also dirt cheap at $3300. Second base is loaded with cheap plays under $3500 so I would not want to pay up at this position

· Matt Harvey is terrible especially to LHH

· Lopez’s minor league success has carried into MLB with 5 hits in his first 11 ABs with 3 doubles


THIRD BASE

MIGUEL SANO

· Very cheap since this is just his second game back

· Hit 2 doubles in his first game and did not seem rusty at all

· Better hitter vs LHP with a .252 ISO and a .504 SLG compared to a .228 ISO and .470 SLG vs RHP


MATT CARPENTER

· Gets a massive ballpark upgrade going into Texas

· Leclerc has a 6.32 ERA and will be opening this game and Sampson has a 5.25 ERA and has given up 7 homeruns in just 36 innings

· Mashes the sinker with a .293 ISO and Sampson throws it 54% to LHH


SHORT STOP

FRANCISCO LINDOR

· Hitting the ball really well and leads off for the Indians

· Lots of power and speed and Bundy is not great at holding on base runners

· Bundy has a 30.6% K rate to RHH but only 17.7% to LHH and Lindor is a switch hitter so will be able to battle Bundy from the left side


COREY SEAGER

· Love all the lefties from the Dodgers

· Descalfani has given up a .535 SLG to LHH this season and has been destroyed by them all his career

· Massive ballpark shift and Dodgers have the power to club 4-5 homeruns in a game


OUTFIELD

CODY BELLINGER

· .443 BA against RHP this season with a .423 ISO

· Perfect matchup given Descalfani’s struggles against LHH


JOC PEDERSON

· Leadoff hitter with tons of raw power

· All 13 homeruns have come against RHP this season

· .444 ISO against RHP this season


CHAD PINDER

· Batting .310 against lefties this season and hit .290 against them last season

· Projected to bat in the 2 hole against a bad lefty

· Had one of the hardest hard hit rate against lefties last season


CARLOS GONZALEZ

· Only $3300 and projected to bat in the cleanup spot

· With the high total for the Indians should get many RBI opportunities today


STEPHEN PISCOTTY

· Batting a healthy .372 against lefties this season with a .302 ISO

· Only $3600 which is dirt cheap for an OF especially given the matchup the A’s have


TOP STACKS: DODGERS, INDIANS, ATHLETICS, TWINS
